That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.

Feel humbled by the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to swim with majestic humpback whales in the Sunshine Coast during this unique tour. Once a whale is spotted, the trained crew will guide you safely into the water for your chance to experience their glorious presence in their own domain.
Experience the closest thing to magic during this 3 hour boat expedition in the Sunshine Coast. Cruising off from Mooloolaba in a comfortable vessel, you and your experienced crew will be in search of the gentle giants of the underwater world, humpback whales. Once a whale is sighted, the boat will be put into neutral 100m or more away from the whale and if conditions are deemed safe by the trained crew, you'll be led into the water with a floating safety line attached to the boat for your chance to get a little closer to them. Feel spellbound as you share the waters with these majestic creatures and be fascinated by their graceful movements. For those that would prefer not to climb into the waters and get wet, you're welcome to stay on board and watch the magic unfold.
Please note: This experience is 100% on the whales own terms. The supplier will do everything in its power, to ensure whale encounters, but cannot guarantee that you will get to swim with these magnificent sea mammals. If on the day the boat doesn't sight a whale at all, you will be eligible for 50% off your next trip. This is not available if we find whales but are unable to enter the water with them.
